    Do you need an API to access the data that is in sysdig?
    You can also push the sysdig data into kafka and from there into a different data store: https://www.ibm.com/cloud/blog/announcements/streaming-capability-now-available-in-ibm-cloud-monitoring

    Or do you need something else?

    As explained in the email thread, we need to have ability to fetch the data through API.

    From a VSI there is a Launch Monitoring button:


    I’ve created a platform log for the region so I see this for the VPC (which has one volume on one instance)


    Have you seen this? Were you hoping for more?

    Hi team,
